Wizkid is expected to perform alongside other Ugandan musicians, Djs, and MCs including John Blaq, Vinka, DJ Ciza and MC Deedan among others.
After failure to turn up, for the 2016 concert that was slated for December 3, 2016, in Kampala, the singer promised Ugandans to make it up to them in any way possible. This was after many had publicised and paid for the tickets which left fans outraged and disappointed.
On his twitter account, Wizkid humbly apologized to fans: “Apologies to my fans in Uganda! I promise to make it up anyway possible,” he promised.
With the promise, a lot is expected from the singer as many await his performance in the Dirty December concert.
Africa’s most valuable asset is popular for his famous songs “Ghetto Love”, “Fever|” which he sang together with his lover Tiwa Savage, Ojuelegba, Tease me, Don’t Dull and many more.
Undoubtedly, he is one of the world’s biggest stars as he is also praised for his magnetic and enchanting performances that leave crowds yearning for more afro beats.
